    I’m feeling the album! There are a lot of people who are not so open minded or ready to hear different things!

  • h2 says:

    @Russ – i’m open minded. i like to hear different things. Kanye doing an impersonation of T-Pain over better beats is not fresh. I tried to like it. I tried really hard.

  • Rick Lexington says:

    This may sound stupid but I bought the last album and it was good. I just couldn’t copy it onto another cd so I can save it and use another cd or just put it on my mp3 player. Yeah that won’t be happening again lol.

  • Rick Lexington says:

    The tracks that i have heard are good though.

  • Kanye..put his heart into it as usual..another classic..hands down.

  • Eric says:

    this is what i been waiting for eva since i heard “graduate” i know this album gone be a killa….???

  • Janae says:

    i bought it already from itunes and i love every song it’s a classic in my book.

  • Russ says:

    h2-Kanye doesn’t sound like T-Pain at all! If you listen to T-Pain and Ron Brown (Pop Champagne), they don’t sound a like at all! Plus, you say that now but wait til ’09!

  • kristie says:

    i bought it but have yet to finish listening to the whole album but what i have heard, i like. he has a way of writing exactly what i feel, except i didn’t know i felt that way until he said it. i love how the cd insert opens up to a picture of him&his mom. made me wanna cry.

  • island_flava says:

  • RSX says:

    So Amazing

  • Chris J the Genius says:

    At first, I was extremely perturbed that Kanye went from rapping to singing, seemingly following a trend that Lil’ Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and even Young Berg bit off T-Pain, who reintroduced Roger Troutman’s usage of the vocoder to the world of hip-hop and R&B. Kanye is a leader as far as I’m concerned, so him following anyone else irks me. Nevertheless, the man has been through a lot (i.e. broken engagement to his longtime girlfriend, the gut-wrenching death of his mother) and being a true artist, I knew that he would be dealing with these issues. So I gave the album a chance (meaning that I downloaded it – sorry Mr. West). But guess what? It’s not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, I actually like the album. While it is a departure from the victorious and triumphant music we are used to hearing from Kanye (once again, this is due to what he has been through lately), the album is still really good and features some good melodies and music. Pretty much every song on the album deals with leaving someone, losing someone, or Kanye’s dilemma: he is rich and successful with no family of his own and no one to actually love, understand, and complete him. All great artists allow fans, listeners, and ultimately popular culture to benefit from the pain, strife, and drama that they encounter in their lives. Kanye West continues the legacy of great artists who have done so and can now add his name to the list. Heartfelt, sorrowful, vulnerable, sincere, and TIMELESS music is what this album contains. He took a risk, and while the numbers haven’t come in yet, he certainly won the artistic battle of pushing the envelope and disregarding the status quo. With that being said, I sincerely hope that Kanye will return to rapping for the next album. I also hope that he will go back to his higher learning-inspired series, in which the next album is to be entitled “A Good Ass Job.” Yes, I downloaded the album, but I’m gonna have to go cop that ish. So here’s an IOU to Kanye West because I’m a Broke Phi Broke college student: “Wait ’til I get my money right…”
